Most likley problem is the door is not closing properly or the door latch switch is faulty. This means the dishwasher controller is not getting the right signal before commencing the wash cycle.
Need to check the closure of the latch. If this is ok then replace the door switch.

see this causes, and use the common sense. God bless you When your dishwasher door has a problem, check these:LatchSpringsHingesDoor sealLatchThe
latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close
but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more
easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed
in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching
the latch has worn out in a way that makes it impossible for you to
close the door properly, you probably need to replace the latch. SpringsYour
dishwasher has two springs that counterbalance the weight of the door.
If either or both of these are broken, the door feels quite heavy and
you need to replace both springs.HingesThe
hinges are important to the door closing properly. If they're bent or
deformed, you probably need to replace them. Once bent, only rarely can
they be straightened well enough.Door sealIf
your dishwasher is new--or if you have just replaced a door seal--the
door may be difficult to latch for a week or two. If the tightness
persists, though, try adjusting the latch, if it's adjustable. If it's
not adjustable, there's probably nothing you can do immediately. But try
running the dishwasher on the highest heat cycle to help the seal
conform to the door. Otherwise, the seal should compress over time.
Just below dish loading door there is a panel. Remove screws (if applicable) to find tension adjustment. Turn screw to the left to loosen or opposite lifting door open or closed untill happy with tension. Some washers have no adjustment, I suggest opening door fully and pulling out bottom load tray, loading and then top tray or rack, pushing top in first then bottom rack. Use a glass fry pan cover or fry pan for weight on door while filling soap. Good luck, best regards
One possible cause is that the latch has moved outward so the door is not closing all the way. There are usually 2 screws that hold the latching plate to the top of the tub, loosen those and reposition the latch towards the rear of the tub which will make the door close tighter.
hope this helps
If you own an LG dishwasher, the "2H" means two hours = 120 minutes, which the 2 digit display can not. If it is an LG and does not start when you fully close the door, you ~probably~have a failed or mis-adjusted door "latch" sensor. The LG does not actually have a door latch, but it senses when it is closed, so it can safely begin to wash.
Please check this out and post back here with your progress. OK?
You definitely need to download the Service Manual. You can start the check program by pressing Upper Only+Time Delay+Power, but you need to know the sequence to be followed to check each component. I did this to fix my dishwasher (heater unit was deffective).
I recommend you to search the internet for the Service Manual (you can find it for download) and run the program.
Good luck !
The LG LDS 5811 and all models that start with 'LDF" do not have a door latch. They do have a child lock _but_ that feature does not lock the door closed or open, it just locks the controls so the DW can not be turned on or settings changed.
So, please look at the right side edge of the opened door and post the model # back here.
The IE is telling you it is not getting enough water. Could be your water pressure is low. Check to make sure the there is not a build up of grime, or calcium deposits in the water hose, and at the valve.
The other thing is if your unit is an older one, prior to mar 07, you may have broken wires in the door. Remove the door panel and look for any wires that are stuck in the insulation. The sensor wires are thin and gray in colour. Splice the wires and put some of the white insulation in between the wires and the door so it cannot happen again.
Broken wires can be hard to find if the break is not all the way through.
